The tomb of first shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu was placed in the inner shrine at Nikko Toshogu. When the stone pagoda, which had replaced an early wooden structure, was destroyed by an earthquake in 1683, the fifth shogun Tsunayoshi rebuilt it in Chinese-style bronze. The crane-shaped candlestick, censer, and vase were gifts from the king of Korean.
